 +====== GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE ======
 +Version 3, 29 June 2007
  
 + Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
 + Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
 + of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
 +
 +===== Preamble =====
 +
 +The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
 +software and other kinds of works.
 +
 +The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
 +to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
 +the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
 +share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
 +software for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
 +GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
 +any other work released this way by its authors.  You can apply it to
 +your programs, too.
 +
 +When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
 +price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
 +have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
 +them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
 +want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
 +free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
 +
 +To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
 +these rights or asking you to surrender the rights.  Therefore, you have
 +certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
 +you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
 +
 +For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
 +gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
 +freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too, receive
 +or can get the source code.  And you must show them these terms so they
 +know their rights.
 +
 +Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
 +(1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
 +giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
 +
 +For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
 +that there is no warranty for this free software.  For both users' and
 +authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
 +changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
 +authors of previous versions.
 +
 +Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
 +modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
 +can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
 +protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The systematic
 +pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
 +use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.  Therefore, we
 +have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
 +products.  If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
 +stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
 +of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
 +
 +Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
 +States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
 +software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
 +avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
 +make it effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL assures that
 +patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
 +
 +The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
 +modification follow.
 +
 +===== TERMS AND CONDITIONS =====
 +
 +==== 0. Definitions. ====
 +"This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
 +
 +"Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
 +works, such as semiconductor masks.
 +
 +"The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
 +License.  Each licensee is addressed as "you".  "Licensees" and
 +"recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
 +
 +To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
 +in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
 +exact copy.  The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
 +earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
 +
 +A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
 +on the Program.
 +
 +To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
 +permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
 +infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
 +computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
 +distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
 +public, and in some countries other activities as well.
 +
 +To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
 +parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
 +a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
 +
 +An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
 +to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
 +feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
 +tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
 +extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
 +work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
 +the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
 +menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
 +
 +==== 1. Source Code. ====
 +The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
 +for making modifications to it.  "Object code" means any non-source
 +form of a work.
 +
 +A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
 +standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
 +interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
 +is widely used among developers working in that language.
 +
 +The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
 +than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
 +packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
 +Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
 +Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
 +implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
 +"Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
 +(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
 +(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
 +produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
 +
 +The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
 +the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
 +work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
 +control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
 +System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
 +programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
 +which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
 +includes interface definition files associated with source files for
 +the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
 +linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
 +such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
 +subprograms and other parts of the work.
 +
 +The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
 +can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
 +Source.
 +
 +The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
 +same work.
 +
 +==== 2. Basic Permissions. ====
 +
 +All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
 +copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
 +conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
 +permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
 +covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
 +content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
 +rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
 +
 +You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
 +convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
 +in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
 +of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
 +with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
 +the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
 +not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
 +for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
 +and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
 +your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
 +
 +Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
 +the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
 +makes it unnecessary.
 +
 +==== 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law. ====
 +
 +No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
 +measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
 +11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
 +similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
 +measures.
 +
 +When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
 +circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
 +is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
 +the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
 +modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
 +users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
 +technological measures.
 +
 +==== 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies. ====
 +You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
 +receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
 +appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
 +keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
 +non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
 +keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
 +recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
 +
 +You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
 +and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
 +
 +==== 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions. ====
 +You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
 +produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
 +terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
 +
 +    a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
 +    it, and giving a relevant date.
 +
 +    b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
 +    released under this License and any conditions added under section
 +    7.  This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
 +    "keep intact all notices".
 +
 +    c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
 +    License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
 +    License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
 +    additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
 +    regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no
 +    permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
 +    invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
 +
 +    d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
 +    Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
 +    interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
 +    work need not make them do so.
 +
 +A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
 +works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
 +and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
 +in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
 +"aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
 +used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
 +beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
 +in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
 +parts of the aggregate.
 +
 +==== 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms. ====
 +You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
 +of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
 +machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
 +in one of these ways:
 +
 +    a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
 +    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
 +    Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
 +    customarily used for software interchange.
 +
 +    b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
 +    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
 +    written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
 +    long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
 +    model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
 +    copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
 +    product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
 +    medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
 +    more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
 +    conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
 +    Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
 +
 +    c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
 +    written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This
 +    alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
 +    only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
 +    with subsection 6b.
 +
 +    d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
 +    place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
 +    Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
 +    further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
 +    Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
 +    copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
 +    may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
 +    that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
 +    clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
 +    Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the
 +    Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
 +    available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
 +
 +    e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
 +    you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
 +    Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
 +    charge under subsection 6d.
 +
 +A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
 +from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
 +included in conveying the object code work.
 +
 +A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
 +tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
 +or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
 +into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
 +doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
 +product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
 +typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
 +of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
 +actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
 +is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
 +commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
 +the only significant mode of use of the product.
 +
 +"Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
 +procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
 +and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
 +a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must
 +suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
 +code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
 +modification has been made.
 +
 +If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
 +specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
 +part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
 +User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
 +fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
 +Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
 +by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
 +if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
 +modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
 +been installed in ROM).
 +
 +The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
 +requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
 +for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
 +the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
 +network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
 +adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
 +protocols for communication across the network.
 +
 +Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
 +in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
 +documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
 +source code form), and must require no special password or key for
 +unpacking, reading or copying.
 +
 +==== 7. Additional Terms. ====
 +
 +"Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
 +License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
 +Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
 +be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
 +that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
 +apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
 +under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
 +this License without regard to the additional permissions.
 +
 +When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
 +remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
 +it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
 +removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
 +additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
 +for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
 +
 +Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
 +add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
 +that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
 +
 +    a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
 +    terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
 +
 +    b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
 +    author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
 +    Notices displayed by works containing it; or
 +
 +    c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
 +    requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
 +    reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
 +
 +    d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
 +    authors of the material; or
 +
 +    e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
 +    trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
 +
 +    f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
 +    material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
 +    it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
 +    any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
 +    those licensors and authors.
 +
 +All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
 +restrictions" within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
 +received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
 +governed by this License along with a term that is a further
 +restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
 +a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
 +License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
 +of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
 +not survive such relicensing or conveying.
 +
 +If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
 +must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
 +additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
 +where to find the applicable terms.
 +
 +Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
 +form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
 +the above requirements apply either way.
 +
 +==== 8. Termination. ====
 +You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
 +provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
 +modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
 +this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
 +paragraph of section 11).
 +
 +However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
 +license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
 +provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
 +finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
 +holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
 +prior to 60 days after the cessation.
 +
 +Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
 +reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
 +violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
 +received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
 +copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
 +your receipt of the notice.
 +
 +Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
 +licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
 +this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
 +reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
 +material under section 10.
 +
 +==== 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies. ====
 +You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
 +run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
 +occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
 +to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
 +nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
 +modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
 +not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
 +covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
 +
 +==== 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients. ====
 +Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
 +receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
 +propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
 +for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
 +
 +An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
 +organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
 +organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
 +work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
 +transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
 +licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
 +give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
 +Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
 +the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
 +
 +You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
 +rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
 +not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
 +rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
 +(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
 +any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
 +sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
 +
 +==== 11. Patents. ====
 +A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
 +License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
 +work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
 +
 +A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
 +owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
 +hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
 +by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
 +but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
 +consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
 +purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
 +patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
 +this License.
 +
 +Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
 +patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
 +make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
 +propagate the contents of its contributor version.
 +
 +In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
 +agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
 +(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
 +sue for patent infringement).  To "grant" such a patent license to a
 +party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
 +patent against the party.
 +
 +If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
 +and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
 +to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
 +publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
 +then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
 +available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
 +patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
 +consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
 +license to downstream recipients.  "Knowingly relying" means you have
 +actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
 +covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
 +in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
 +country that you have reason to believe are valid.
 +
 +If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
 +arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
 +covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
 +receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
 +or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
 +you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
 +work and works based on it.
 +
 +A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
 +the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
 +conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
 +specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
 +work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
 +in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
 +to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
 +the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
 +parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
 +patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
 +conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
 +for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
 +contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
 +or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
 +
 +Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
 +any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
 +otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
 +
 +==== 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom. ====
 +If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
 +otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
 +excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
 +covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
 +License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
 +not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
 +to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
 +the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
 +License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
 +
 +==== 13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License. ====
 +Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
 +permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
 +under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
 +combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
 +License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
 +but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
 +section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
 +combination as such.
 +
 +==== 14. Revised Versions of this License. ====
 +The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
 +the GNU General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
 +be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
 +address new problems or concerns.

 +Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
 +Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
 +Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
 +option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
 +version or of any later version published by the Free Software
 +Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
 +GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
 +by the Free Software Foundation.
 +
 +If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
 +versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
 +public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
 +to choose that version for the Program.
 +
 +Later license versions may give you additional or different
 +permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
 +author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
 +later version.
 +
 +==== 15. Disclaimer of Warranty. ====
 +THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
 +APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
 +HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
 +OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
 +THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
 +PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
 +IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
 +ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
 +
 +==== 16. Limitation of Liability. ====
 +IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
 +WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
 +THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
 +GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
 +USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
 +DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
 +PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
 +EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
 +SUCH DAMAGES.
 +
 +==== 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16. ====
 +If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
 +above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
 +reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
 +an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
 +Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
 +copy of the Program in return for a fee.
